SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

The Rural Housing and Economic Development (RHED) program provides funding to Indian tribes, state housing finance agencies, state community and/or economic development agencies, local rural nonprofits and community development corporations to support innovative housing and economic development activities in rural areas. The program is authorized in annual HUD appropriations acts and was originally authorized in the Fiscal Year (FY) 1998 HUD Appropriation Act (Pub. L. 105-65, 111 Stat. 1344, 1357, approved October 27, 1997). The RHED program is administered by the Assistant Secretary for Community Planning and Development.
